“Almost - but not quite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

Great location in central Budapest and has all the right touches that make a difference. Had a corner room with 2 small windows but still quite dingy. It was also small although adequate for business travel as I did not spend a huge amount of time in there. While touches such as pencil sharpener, highlighter pen etc in the desk draw are nice touches - no iron and ironing board is a mistake. I know teh idea is that the guest uses the valet service, but this is frankly inconvenient when you simply want to make sure that shirts are fresh and trousers pressed - business travellors expect this today.

Breakfast is no more than i would expect from a 5* hotel (and coffee is poor being over ;long kept in thermos flasks) and the bar is part of the Nobu restaurant and not a particularly welcoming place to sit and discuss matters with colleagues. Hence no Excellent rating.

Note that although the hotel was being refurbished I have not market it down for this as these things are a necessity from time to time.

Dear valued guest,

First of all we would like to thank you that you have honored our hotel for your Budapest stay.
It is great to read that you valued our location and service, we apologize however for the inconveniences because of the missing ironing facilities.
There is a continuous effort on our side to improve this service and we are grateful for your comments.

With regards to the breakfast, please note that we have finished the upgrade of our entire ground floor and can offer several breakfast options with the common Kempinski experience. Part of the ground floor upgrade was also the implementation of a classic but sophisticated bar. We would be delight to welcome you there.

Once again, we like to thank you for valuing us and our services as well as refurbishment.

We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you again at our hotel and would like to assure you of our best attention to your future stays at the Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest.

Yours sincerely,
The Kempinski Budapest Team

This hotel was definitely one of the best hotels I have stayed in Budapest. The food was really good, breakfast is outstanding and should not be missed. The view is not as good as the waterfront hotels but then it is really close to everything, which is within a few minutes walk. I would really recommend staying at this hotel.

This is a lovely hotel, the staff are very helpful (even when I checked out at 3am!) the breakfast was varied and suitable for all tastes/diets. I only briefly used the spa for a quick swim one morning, but the rest of the families looked very nice. Well situated in the centre of town by many restaurants and cafes, with just a short walk to the river too.

This is our 2nd visit to the hotel in 4 years.
On arrival at the hotel at 2am due to a delayed flight we were starving. We ordered some room service from the A la carte menu and the food was first class!!
The medallions of Mangalica Pork "gypsie style" should definitely be tried (even if at 3 am)
The rooms are very clean and the beds are huge and comfy.
The location is perfect and very central.
There is so much choice for breakfast and the service you recieve is amazing!!
I am returning to Budapest in June and staying at The Corinthia it is going to have a lot to live up to!!

I was there last week for a business trip. The hotel is centrally located, looks great (both on the outside and the inside, including the rooms). Service is extraordinary - the staff is very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is top notch, and service here isn't lacking as well - they went out of their way to help.

I recommend the hotel wholeheartedly.

Room Tip: I had a room on the 7th floor at the end of the corridor (762) which was real quiet.

Just back after 5 lovely nights at the Kempinski
This is a hotel that deserves its 5 star rating, as some hotels get 5 star ratings when they are only 4 star. But not Kempinski Location is great as its next to a metro line also near tram lines , the hop on hop off bus stops 100 yards away.
As for hotel the rooms are lovely ,nice decor, the food is top class and the spa area is luxury.
Rooms are well serviced you get your bed turned down in the evening also bottle of water at each side of bed.
Robes and slippers provided not like some other hotels.
No faults at all with this hotel,and would book again if coming back to Budapest
